“I guess social media is full of confusion and words are often misconstrued, and to be honest with you, if homosexual people have more rights than heterosexual people just say that,” T.I. said during an Instagram Live. “Just let that be the law, is that the law?”
T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., took to social media to address people who were scrutinizing DaBaby after he made comments about people’s HIV/AIDS status along with other questionable remarks on Sunday, as Blavity previously reported.
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually-transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two, three weeks, put a cell phone lighter up,” DaBaby told the Rolling Loud audience in Miami. “Fellas, if you ain’t suckin’ d**k in the parking lot, put your cell phone lights up.”
